The state of Connecticut has a law that provides for siezure of weapons, literally siezure by police, without a warrant, of weapons from people who pose a danger to themselves or others. There's then a court process that person can, in effect, get their guns or firearms back if they can convince a judge that they have been wrongly siezed. So that kind of siezure law, unique to Connecticut right now, is one that can be broadened perhaps very usefully to other states across the country.
Two dialogs took place in two different countries, and although they took place three decades apart, they are astonishingly and chillingly similar. The scene was all too common in psychiatric hospitals in the former Soviet Union and now in present-day China. The Soviet Communist Party (CPSU) and Chinese Communist Party (CCP) use psychiatric confinement as a method to persecute and punish political prisoners.
The first dialog was between a psychiatrist and dissident General Petro Grigorievich Grigorenko in the former Soviet Union. General Grigorenko was once involved in the Soviet Union's Great Patriotic War and other major battles. He had made meritorious contributions to the Soviet Red Army and received distinguished honors. However, because he dared to criticize Soviet leaders and the Soviet regime, he was persecuted by the KGB several times.
When the doctor asked him whether he had changed his convictions, General Grigorenko replied, "Convictions are not like gloves; they are not easily changed."
The doctor said, “Then, you will need to continue your treatment.”
